“Delicious meat”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

All the times that I travel to Basel for a business trip, I prefer to have dinner in some of the little towns near the border, in the German side. We discovered this restaurant, and we really appreciated some good dishes; appetizers and topping with a good bread, delicious steaks, very well cooked. The meat is really high quality.
The restaurant is nice and clean, and the bill is not expensive.

“Great steaks and well served”
Reviewed January 11, 2014 via mobile

We just had the spontaneous spark of mind to have dinner there, since we weren't there for 5yrs. Last time it was bad and just gave it a try:
Very good idea - good choices of meat of high quality, well prepared and treated. The location is really nice and we were lucky to get a table.
Last but not least the bill: for Swiss guests it really is worth dining there - you will save at 50% for the same...

“Great meat, very nice staff”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Contradictive to other restaurants in Rhinefelden, Germany, the staff is nice and friendly and gives you a good feeling. The bread (warmed up) and the three toppings (spiced butter, slightly hot salsa and some mayonease) are all wonderfull, balanced salt and good savory.
The ice berg salad is also well and then you got the meat, and this is great. Mean, it is big and made to the point and it is delicious. Had the steak with black pepper and that was WoW.
Good staff, you cannot dry out.
The next time I am there in Rhinefelden, Ill be back, for sure!

“Great food, fun people”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

This is as close to Argentina as you will get in Rheinfelden, Germany. The selection of steaks is impressive and the preparation is equally good. The decor is very Gaucho, and you get the feel from the staff, that you could be in South America. I had the mixed grill (3 different steaks) and each was cooked perfectly. We came with a large party and they immediately gave us the upstairs party room. When closing time came, they let us stay, turned on music and gave us free drinks while we danced to music.
